    I just got this RAZR M and am using SwiftKey and Go Sms pro. When I start responding to a text it automatically brings up the Google search bar and it's annoying. Anyone know how to disable this?

    If you go into apps select Google search remove updates than disable it. That will remove it from your home screen and will probably remove it from every where else.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    Be careful if you DISABLE Google Search as it will affect your voice input with other apps, rendering voice input unusable.

    But if you want to do it : Settings/Apps/All/ Google search/ Disable

    It sucks that it does that, I hate the bar on the top of the screen. Thanks for bring up that point. Slipped my mind.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    Is there a way to regain back the home screen space, that Google Search used to be using?

    Unless you get a different launcher.

    After I reboot, the gray bar disappears. It is just that the space that remains is empty.

    I get a gray bar with my droid MAXX, my older phone left a void there. As mentioned you can use nova launcher or another launcher.
